I wasn’t the biggest fan of Telltale’s The Walking Dead. It was okay in my book, but that doesn’t mean I think it didn’t deserve the awards it received, because it certainly did. However, it just wasn’t my cup of tea. Nevertheless, the launch trailer for The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier looks rather gripping, as they introduce some new friends and foes and some new challenges for Clementine and her new traveling partner Javier to encounter.
Telltale recently posted up the launch trailer ahead of the release of the two-part first episode for season 3. You can check out the the snappy but well edited video below.
This is the first time where they’ve focused a lot of the attention on the new enemies that players will encounter in the third season. The previous trailers and press releases for season 3 focused mostly on Clementine’s new running mate and the horrors he escaped from when he was with his family.
Telltale has been known for not pulling punches with their take on The Walking Dead, so the trailer definitely sets gamers up for some exciting experiences, especially given that they’re not afraid to kill off main characters, just like with Lee Everett in the first season of The Walking Dead.
This latest season will also be running on Telltale’s new and improved game engine, so we’ll see if they’ve improved on the animations and graphics, something that’s been needing a bit of a facelift for a while now. I would also like to see better lip-synching tech applied.
Anyway, you can look for The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – Season 3: A New Frontier‘s two part first episode to launch for the Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, PC and iOS and Android devices starting December 20th., next Tuesday.
